Iran Customs’ Emergency Plan for Speedy Import Clearance

Tehran : RICA has recently introduced an emergency plan to speed up the clearance of imports and reduce the pile-up of goods at customs and ports.

The order issued by the Islamic Republic of Iran Customs Administration’s newly-appointed chief, Mehdi Mirashrafi, pertained to containers accumulated at the southern port of Shahid Rajaee, IRICA’s news service reported.

IRICA says a total of 18,871 out of 42,000 shipping containers of merchandise piled up at customs terminals across the country in the nine months ending Dec. 21, 2018, have been declared abandoned.

More than 90% of the goods marked as abandoned due to complications associated with customs clearance had completed import order registration.
